Better Help Eap Online Today

When I was first approached…Better Help Eap…. to potentially team up with them on a youtube series one of the things that was truly important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what subjects I selected to provide and also you know my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they basically stated you know we trust you as a medical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you know and one of the things that I actually wished to address is the reality that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for whatever you know I think it can be extremely valuable for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing with people from a few months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with someone is truly a it

practically enriches the the healing experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I completely enjoy that and there are people that I see there that I would not consider seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfortable and and that’s alright those two things can both be true and I believe among the things that I want to start to have people think of exists’s a location for both online and offline therapy it is really a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I discuss certain counseling styles or approaches as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the very best method for

the particular problem that you’re dealing with and I believe that one of the issues that a lot of people have is that online counseling is trying to change offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not true I’ve had lots of conversations with the creator of where he has actually discussed that his audience isn’t to take on brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his mission is to provide mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the treatment office and I 100% support that objective and I believe it’s important and we have a problem with gain access to

to psychological healthcare in this country and is one solution as our other online companies I was discussing earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better for or offline therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve really I’ve actually discussed this in other settings since it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I need to say that my opinion has actually been popular by business like in regards to hopefully how they how they work with the people that provide for care so I just wished to invest a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own individual opinion about the important things that are most suitable for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic place for people who are having problem with challenging life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for circumstances where you understand they have a really specific concern with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is really structured can can benefit them and that therapy because it’s not as interpersonal as others is best for online counseling because it includes a great deal of research it includes worksheets it involves learning specific skills and techniques so mild milder disorders like mild anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has gotten care initially in other places these are all things that can be resolved through online therapy you know think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and possibly they reach out to a therapist from their house because they can’t leave their house and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are really horrified of being caught and trapped in a place where they may have an anxiety attack therefore basically they start to limit their activities and limit their activities up until many of them can’t leave their house without actually feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and connect to a therapist that’s an excellent primary step is that going to treat them never because agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and often that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure undoubtedly online therapists are going to have the ability to do that however might they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their house from that preliminary supportive method to therapy where they can really have a much better life 100% and this is what the gap that aims to fill with their services my point to this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I want to plainly interact that anything that I share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more importantly what I believe is as just a human being on this earth attempting to do the very best that I can and so I I will not inform you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I will not share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever due to the fact that I do not think that therefore you can always expect to hear my sincere viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video useful and intriguing if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a variety of different psychological health subjects and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to attend to or cover in an approaching video
